 Post subject: Photography with Fog?
PostPosted: Sat Dec 05, 2009 4:02 am 
I'm doing a shoot with a buddy of mine on Sunday. I've done a quick search already and saw some pretty cool pictures. In any case, I wanted to get some tips and advice on how to take photos when it's foggy. Like, what kind of metering mode would be used? ISO value? Exposure compensation? Aperture?

If it's relevant, I'm using a Canon Rebel XS/1000D with the 18-55mm kit lens.

I wouldn't know any specific settings, but, if you are shooting in the fog, you may have to boost the contrast a bit later.
Also, try to get some lights in the background that spread through the fog.

I take pictures so quickly, my highschool was "Continuous High".

It would normally make the light metering quite bright, but without further experience i'll just say that iso noise will be highlighted and probably more importantly, focusing, sometimes you'll get it focusing on the fog rather than the subject, so manually focusing would be best i feel.
